The time is drawing close (very close) for me to be giving birth to our twins. Apparently there is a CD player in the delivery room so naturally I would like to put together a birthing playlist. It's actually quite hard to decide on what I'd want to listen to since I've never given birth before. Maybe cheesy rock music? Maybe ambient electronic? Classical? Tom Jones?
I certainly don't think this song should be on there but it does make me smile - I can only imagine how much it could annoy the midwifes. Popcorn
Hark! Spring is fast approaching, some would say it's already here. I've been busy using the winter months to hibernate and grow two additional members of our family, we'll get to meet them in just over 3 months time. The internet tells me they are just beginning to hear, all be it muffled sounds. This is all very exciting for us.
In the meantime, here's some funky beep-beep-blop electronic music to start your weekend. Can't believe this is 10 years old, can't believe I'm 10 years older.
Artist: Four Tet Song: As Serious As Your Life Album: Rounds (2003)
Did you get your tickets to see The Knife's upcoming tour? What? You didn't bother? OK, you might be missing out on one of the concerts of 2013 but I'll say no more in case the subject is still a little sore for you. Don't know who The Knife are? Don't care? Fair enough, their music isn't to everyone's taste. MrChalky likes to point out how weird my musical taste is whenever I put one of their albums on.
This is probably their most well known song - the actual singer is the lady sitting down at the very end. Can't wait to hear their new album.
It's quite an exciting year for new releases. There's Caitlin Rose, Low (yes!), Phosphorescent, The Knife, Devendra Banhart and probably loads more I forget right now. Yep, 2013, the year of the snake according to the Chinese and what will be our first full year in Oxford, which incidentally I'm delighted to say has a thriving music scene. I'm looking forward to lighter, warmer days and catching up with friends, old and new. Happy new year everyone!
